Beachy boutique hotel is the newest in Hilton’s line of unique independent hotels.
SANTA BARBARA, Calif., August 9, 2022 — The charming beach chic Leta Hotel in Santa Barbara is now a Tapestry Collection by Hilton hotel. Earlier this year, AWH Partners purchased the property with Spire Hospitality as the new management company. This elevated historic hotel rooted in the California vibe and beach culture of Santa Barbara
underwent significant investment to refresh the guest experience, creating a perfect escape for work and play.
The158-room Leta Hotel is ideally located in Goleta and is prized for its cool, hip and carefree Californian personality and it’s artful, quirky, unexpected, open and soulful chemistry. Local art, music, food and wine come together at The Leta, and the hotel boasts 6,000 square feet of meeting space, welcoming locals and out of town guests alike for one- of-a-kind meetings and events.
“We are thrilled to be the first Spire property to join the Tapestry Collection by Hilton brand,” said Barry Dorsey, general manager of The Leta Hotel. “As part of Tapestry Collection, The Leta is more visible to travelers looking for a unique property with a highly accessible and lively beach community to immerse themselves during their stay. Guests can now book through Hilton.com and Hilton’s reservation system, and Hilton Honors members are able to earn and redeem points during their stay.”
Spire Hospitality operates 30 hotels and resorts, including The Grove Resort and Water Park in Winter Garden, Florida; Villa Florence Hotel in San Francisco; Topnotch Resort in Stowe, Vermont; and High Peaks Resort in Lake Placid, New York, among other unique properties throughout the country.
